Brits Spitting on Hands for Good Luck?

Jump to last reply

Recently on Coronation Street, the long-running favourite British TV soap opera, two folks when wishing themselves luck in some endeavor each spit on their own hands - one first then the other.

As a frequent traveler to Britain I like to understand local customs - it is an important or more to me as seeing museums?

Is this a common thing and how did it develop - or is it the imagination of some Corrie script writer?

Thanks

PQ
